mandela had been elected president the night before, and i had the honor of being the first western journalist that day to shake his hand and sit down and talk with him. mandela showed no bitterness or anger. he was famous for that. no thought of revenge when i asked him about his predecessor f.w. de klerk, he spoke only of reconciliation and working together. >> our relations with mr. de klerk are fairly good. and he is one of those republicans i hold in high regard. we have had some differences. we have quarreled. we have said cruel things against each other. but at the end of the day, we are able to shake hands and think of the interest of south africa. and he has had that experience which i have not had. and if my organization comes out with majority in the elections, i will have to depend very much on his support, his experience. >> what happens when nelson mandela has to use force against elements of south africa's black community? are you willing and able to take on the political pressures that will take place? >> i don't expect a government -- as well as governments would re

things they can't do. republicans win elections when the government asks them to do things they can't do. >> page three of the report it says here, the team is reacting with high pressure velocity and effectiveness. that's an acknowledgment that, you know what, this was a government operation for a long time and it failed. now we're bringing in the private sector folks. that is an indictment on the whole idea of government as a solution, frankly, when you look at this. >> and the president as a manager, and people around him who can get the bureaucracy to move in a particular direction, which is not easy, but this is your point on how nimble government is. >> the challenge is i think the goals are laudible, mayor, and it's something the president articulated brilliantly as an election and reelection mantra. but this is a tough bet, and he had a responsibility to make sure the rollout was not this disastrous in order to achieve these goals. because now they're at risk of losing the credibility of government as an agent of change. >> republicans are insist he en relentless pursuit of failu

's always a string attached. the implications down the road, we'll look at the midterm elections next year and, of course, 2016. >> yeah, there could be big ones. the 2014 midterm elections could be costly for the democrats here, especially in state legislative races where you may remember they'll try to hold on to the very precious 2/3 majority which is neutralized republicans. also, with less enthusiasm among key constituencies, there will be a few congressional seats in play in northern california as well, like jerry mcnerney and john garamendi come to mind. critical seats for those folks. then there's the 2016 presidential election. the big one. with these numbers, republicans may want to invest here which at minimum will force democrats to defend their turf and spend money that they might have spent elsewhere here instead. so, yeah, you say 2014, it's a year away, but you know what, with data like this, huh-uh, for republicans, it can't come fast enough. >> yeah, it sets table for a lot of things. thank you, larry. >>> still to come, finally a ray of light for obama care. the presiden

could have given. >> within a decade mark rosco would be elected montana's governor. in 1984, though, he prosecuted barry beach. >> he gave a very detailed confession that matched the things that were discovered at the crime scene. >> like what? well, beach described the shirt kim wore, the tire iron and crescent wrench used to kill her, how she was dragged out of the driver's side of the pickup, on and on. when testimony was finished, the jury was back in just six hours. the verdict, guilty. and so, in the spring of 1984, the story of the life of barry beach was apparently over, a dead man walking. sentenced to 100 years, no parole, but of course, who are we fooling. the amazing story had really just begun. >> why would barry beach confess to a crime he says he didn't commit? if he's innocent, as he claims, can he somehow prove it? when we come back, a closer look at the evidence. where it points and where it doesn't. >> it's not barry beach's palm print. would you rather have spoons for hands or elbows for ears? i'd rather have food.

the right to vote, that you could have the right to work. then he led the election. he didn't just leave, circumstances change. the freedom of that change with global opinion. >> i was in college when he was freed, rick, and you have this sense, especially looking back historically, that he's released and all is well. and that was the opposite of actually what was the case. when chris hani was an anc leader, was murdered, that was a seminole moment. you talked about when then mandela goes to f.w. de klerk and says, you have to stop this or virtually everything will go off the rails. >> and he went on television in south africa that night rather than de klerk ask showed that he was the father of the nation. as you know, i was with him when his father was murdered. we were in kuno, had just taken an early morning walk, the phone rang and he picked it up and got the news. he was on the phone for about 15 minutes, his expression never changed. he put down the phone and turned to me with a little ex aspiration and said, man, where is our porridge? he was so calm in a crisis and then he rose t
